Originally a retail garden center, Reha Greenhouses has been a family-owned and operated business for nearly fifty years. Established by David and Donna Reha in 1974, the business is now owned and operated by the sixth of their eight daughters, Marianne Reha-Van Roekel and her husband Marty Van Roekel.
Through the years, Reha's has been the epitome of the term "family-operated." In addition to the eight Reha sisters who grew up assisting Dave and Donna in the greenhouses, four Van Roekel children were raised working among the plants. In addition to the Van Roekel children spending school and employment breaks helping out, Marianne's sister Annette made many an annual trek to Southeast Iowa to set up the retail store for spring, and her sister Rosanne and brother-in-law Paul retired to Iowa City from Seattle in 2021 to immediately become valuable members of the spring staff!
In 2023, Marianne and Marty decided it was time to slow down and give extended family a break. Following the 2023 Mum season, the retail store at Reha Greenhouses closed. While Reha Greenhouses continues to grow quality annuals and perennials, it is on a much smaller scale and on contract for another local retail garden center. While they can't guarantee the family will keep growing for another fifty years, they may just give it a try!
